Our innovative technology allows us to perform any sewer repair, from sealing a minor sewer leak to replacing a major pipe collapse, without the need for days of noisy, dirty digging and damage to landscaping, drives and even your home’s foundation. We have fully-trained, professional technicians prepared to solve your sewer issue with a minimum of fuss.
Unlike traditional sewer repair methods that rely on excavation to expose the damaged pipelines, trenchless sewer repair takes advantage of existing sewer access points called cleanout ports. These access points are built in to allow a repair technician to remove obstructions easily. Our trenchless methods use specially designed tools and materials that can be introduced to the damaged areas through these openings, so there’s no need to expose large sections of a broken pipe. Instead, we repair the pipe in place – even underground – protecting your home’s or business’s structure and grounds and keeping your sewer repair as inconspicuous as possible. A typical trenchless sewer repair can often be completed in as little as a day, which minimizes disruption to your family, clients, and workforce.
If your sewer lines have developed leaks but still have enough integrity to support a liner, you can opt for our durable pipe lining service. This method involves the insertion of a long, soft cylinder coated with epoxy, which is then extended to all damaged areas of the pipe. Once it’s in place, the tube is inflated to press the epoxy against the interior of the old pipe, sealing the cracks and holes with resin. The new lining is left to cure for several hours until it hardens into a new cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) that’s adhered to the inside of the old one. The thin lining only reduces the diameter of the pipe by one-quarter of an inch, and its smooth surface promotes water flow for better sewer removal. It lasts for decades and resists rust and corrosion, plus it prevents tree root penetration, eliminating a major cause of recurring sewer blockages.
Pipe bursting is another trenchless sewer repair method that our expert technicians may suggest if your sewer lines cannot be relined due to warping, collapse, or other issues that prevent the liner from passing through the pipe. For sewer lines fractured or dislocated by earthquakes, pipe bursting is the most effective method for replacement. Whereas pipe lining repairs the existing pipe, pipe bursting completely replaces the pipe with a new one right in the ground. We insert a new pipe into the damaged pipe and draw it through, crumbling the old pipe out of the way as it goes. The old pipe debris is removed, leaving only the new pipe in place of the old one.
